Had a Southwestern salad with Portobello mushroom. Very tasty. But the best were the fried pickles!! These are a must have. I know I was skeptical at first but once trying them I had to finish them all!!!

...this place continues to serve the absolute best burgers in the area. Great variety...and quality ingredients. Very popular place, so be prepared. If you have to wait, it is well worth it. Shout out to Harmony, our server (even though I don't think we were in her "official" section). She's great!

As I was heading out of town,my brother took me here. I have to say it was amazing and definitely worth the 12.00 for the burger. The service was ok ,could've been nicer.

The food was fantastic, service was amazing!! Me and my family went here two days in a row. The burgers and buffalo wings are delicious, I highly recommend them. The local beer was very good and not expensive! Our male waiter was great!! All staff were friendly. Great American food for a British family!🍔🍺

Great family restaurant! The burgers are excellent, and there are a wide variety of toppings and cheese to have on them. The fries are also delicious! Good beer menu and very nice wait-staff. I've been several times and will continue to go.

My wife and I stopped in for dinner last night, and it was good as always. One thing to point out is that there is a lot of room inside, it is bigger than it looks. We pulled up late afternoon on a Wednesday, and the parking lot was nearly full. We were expecting a wait, but were sat immediately,... More

We wanted to go someplace a little more formal for dinner one night while we were at the beach so we went to Haywire. They have a menu with a lot of different burgers -- and different kinds of fries, too!! The service was very good and they took good care of us. The portions were generous and we enjoyed... More

Stop in early about 5:15 ..glad we did as the crowds started to show up soon after. the waitstaff was very good. The food is good although a bit too expensive for a burger ( $11.50 ) fries were good also. The burger I thought was a tad too greasy for MY taste. All in all I wont trip over... More
